PODCAST BEFORE I-PADS

Fond memories for the spoken word.   Back in the early 1980’s I would visit and stay with my Grandparents in Walthamstow (East London).  
I was around the age of eight years old Vi (Violett), my Nan who was a large jolly woman, with a panache for asking, ‘Nice cup of tea?’.  She was East end born and bred, filled with boundless pride for her grandson, and would parade me up the Walthamstow market and introduce or point me out to the stallholders.    

My Granddad, Frank who had lost most of his sight, on Sunday’s would stop all household activity to tune in to the Goon show on one of the radio stations.  Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Seacombe in hilarious comedy performances cut down into 30-minute shows.

It didn’t matter that they were repeats, and surprisingly over 20 years old even back then in the 1980’a.  They were new for me and the Goons, were hilarious.   I was too young to appreciate that they were the acknowledged precursor and a big inspiration for the Monty Python.

Grandad (Frank) would also order in cassette tapes of audiobooks and we would sit and devour them over a nice cup of tea and soggy digestive dutifully served up by Nan.  This is, without doubt, the most vivid ‘good times’ memory I have with my Grandparents during these formative years. 

What Is A Podcast

By definition a Podcast is - A digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device.

So how are Podcasts Different From These Old Shows? 

These original radio shows and audiobooks, meet the modern-day criteria of a podcast definition.  Free, On-demand, Niche, Talk radio - The only way they differ is that they were not made available as a downloadable audio file, was because obviously computers, mobile phones and the internet didn’t exist.  

Why are they called Podcast?

The term Podcast is actually a portmanteau of iPod and Broadcast.  Because we now live in a world of ‘On Demand’ creators of the podcast can create their own shows for a growing audience who are seeking content in this format.

Are Podcast Good For Kids?

With the problems of children being only a few clicks away from inappropriate content, parents are increasingly encouraging their children to tune in to the podcast audio format.  

There are other significant benefits too.  The podcast is a great media format for kids because as being in an audio format, pre-digested imagery is not available within them. 

This means that as you and your kids listen to the stories, you have a creative, imaginative experience of actively imagining the worlds as they’re read aloud, rather than having the characters and scenery presented such as you would do in a video.   

Kids Podcast for the Car

Plenty of podcast listeners do so while driving, or otherwise multitask while they listing.  Because Podcast stories are generally a good learning tool for preschoolers.  Helping kids to expand their imagination and strengthen their listening, pronunciation, and comprehension skills.

Podcast stories are great for the car and can create a shared, engaged, positive memory for children rather than disappearing into their own world (screen). So if you are looking for the best kids podcast? Download one of ours!
